On my 2006 F-150 standard bed truck, I have a gas leak. Do I have to remove gas tank to replace the main gas line leaving the fuel pump. It is spewing gas from the top of the coupling when truck electric fuel pump is turned on. Hose has a quick release coupling attaching it to the fuel pump. I was told that I just needed to loosen the tank enough to reach in to the fuel pump and remove the fuel line and replace it? What will I have to do to replace this fuel line?

The tank should be removed, but if you can access the hose without removing it the entire way, then I would try it.

NOW HERE IS WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO:

The truck came from the manufacturer with a 5 year / 50K mile emission warranty. Contact the dealer and tell them you have a fuel leak at the tank and it should fall under the emissions warranty because fumes are getting into the atmosphere.

My point is this, if there was an EVAP leak, it would be covered under warranty. If you argue your point, I feel you should be able to get it covered 100% under warranty unless something has happened to cause the problem like you hit something or the damaged was caused by someone working on it.

Here is a video of the tank being dropped on a similar vehicle with instruction in the diagrams below for you car.
